    MCE 2004 had no problem running at a refresh rate higher than 60Hz. However,
    when I force the refresh rate higher than 60Hz. for MCE 2005 I get a black

    I will reply to my own post.

    I was able to force the display of MCE 2005 full screen at 100Hz or higher
    without having a black screen. So if you are using a program to force the
    refresh rates (like I am) at higher than the default headache inducing 60Hz,
    then you must make the rate 100Hz or higher. Apparently >60 Hz. and <100Hz.
    doesn't work.

    If someone can tell me why this is so, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Not that I know of. That's why I had to make my own post. My monitor
    displays an error when the refresh rate is less than optimal (ie. 60Hz)
    that's why I knew that MCE had forced the refresh down to 60Hz. But if
    you'll look at my follow up post, I was able to make it work using a refresh

    This has been intentional due to issues of jittering.

    There was a white paper that described why the refresh rate would be forced
    down to 60 hz unless you are running a sufficiently high refresh rate (I
    think over 100 hz)

    Lemme try to find that white paper

    Thanks Jason, for the link to the white paper. This information would be
    good to include in the MCE 2005 help files.
